It was a very big surprise when I found out I was pregnant. Not something we were expecting so shortly after getting married. I guess God heard me complaining about *everyone* getting preggers and decided to intervene. lol

I would love to get in touch with other moms-to-be as well as experienced moms, as this is my first child, and I don't really know what I'm getting into. :)

The beginning.... I was off and on the pill. I'm really bad at remembering stuff like that, so I had missed taking it a couple of days. Decided that instead of screwing my system up even more (this was probably the 3rd time a couple of months that I had missed taking the pill for more than 3 days in a row) I would just wait until after I was done with my next period and start taking the pills again.

That period never came.

June 10, 2011 ~ Noticed I hadn't had a period in awhile. Decided to take a test just for kicks and giggles. Took the test, forgot about it, then went back to check on it a few hours later after a nap. Saw a veeeeery faint second line. Freaked out and started texting one of my best friends. She suggested I go to a walk-in clinic to make sure. I did so and sure enough, I was pregnant.

July 11, 2011 ~ First doctor's appointment. Got to see Peanut on the ultrasound. Determined I was 9 weeks and 4 days along. EDD is February 9, 2012.

August 17, 2011 ~ I think I first felt Peanut moving. Something felt like butterflies down in my belly while I was just sitting at a table. Pretty exciting!

September 2, 2011 ~ Had an ultrasound done at 17 weeks. Found that that they're 95% sure it's a girl. Her name is Lucy Joanna. I was right, Dylan was wrong. :P

September 16, 2011 ~ Dylan felt Lucy moving around for the first time today. :)
